In addition, the HPR team has worked on several World Heritage Sites - Hadrian’s Wall, Durham Cathedral and Castle, and the ruins of Fountains Abbey within Studley Royal Park.

Mike Pratt, Northumberland Wildlife Trust Chief Executive says: “I am delighted Historic Property Restoration has joined us a corporate member. Whilst our focus is primarily on natural heritage, we are always interested in ensuring our built heritage and historic landscapes are well managed and complement the natural habitats in which they are located, thereby helping to create a unique sense of place and local character in which people can enjoy watching wildlife and where wild things thrive.

“Many of the buildings HPR restores are excellent homes to wildlife as well, from bats to barn owls to veteran trees. It is great to have them on board.”
